The Roads In Kodiak

Might have to put that new degree to use.

There's not much here.

Jobs at the hospital require certificates I don't have or I'm not qualified to do.

Some retail jobs exist, but not many

Every once in a blue moon a job with the fisheries research center will open up, but you need to be an Alaskan resident for that... which I'm not yet and won't be for a while.

So I'm handing over my resume for TA positions at the elementary school.

Greetings from Puson or Buson (spelled either way) South Korea. Was a quick trip across the Pacific and into the Sea of Japan. Unfortunately unlike my last ship, internet access is almost completely useless. As an example, it took over 20 minutes to get to GT, log in, and open a post I could type in. No way to read anything. Hope you all are well. Fair winds and following seas until next time I manage to report back in…

Haze gray and underway!

Glad to hear from Jeff, kinda sad to hear "this is Kodiak" extends to the ship's internet connection.

 

Trudy, the place is looking fantastic!

Just checked out the weather in South Korea and looks like it's in the 80's. So at least one of you is getting to enjoy a bit of Summer weather. ;)

Yeah, Jeff has weather in the upper 80's and low 90's

I get weather in the upper 50's and low 60's

 

Has it cracked the 70 degree mark even once since you've been there?

At least you sweat less!! Oh wait .... probably not since you are working yourself to the bone around the house!

 

Thanks for what you do Jeff.

Swap all my stuff over to here (voter reg was done early in July), just need to change car reg and license

and then live here for 365 days.

 

Good grief, so by the time you're a resident, you're practically packing up to leave again. Ah well, maybe you'll find something that doesn't require you to be a resident.

 

The house looks fantastic! Great job!

There is pretty much no reason for me to apply for any more govt jobs here - far too many people with "points" so I just get an email saying sorry, too many other candidates that have points applied, we won't be looking at your resume.

Not that I'm even remotely qualified for the one above.

Do You have to work outside the Home or would it be feasible to stay at Home for this 2 Years ? You might enjoy it and

when you are moving again ,then seek outside work again . But I tell you in the Commisary on the Register or some

other Dept. would be not to bad a work. I know , it pays no Money but maybe just 4-6 Hours a Day might just get you to see other

things then 4 Walls and 2 gorgeous Doggies.

Ooo... pretty flowers! Did Jeff send them to you or did you decide you needed something purdy in the house?

Aww, did your honey send you those? What a good man. :)

 

Love the pics of Jet and Ryan. Looks like they, at least, are loving Kodiak.

 

Any worries about encountering bears while you're out with them?
